3.0L And 4.0L Engines

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. With the vehicle in neutral, position it on a hoist.
  3. Remove the splash shield.
  4. Rotate the accessory drive belt tensioner clockwise for 2001-2004 models and counterclockwise for 2005-2006 models. Remove the belt.
  5. To install, reverse the removal procedure.

Serpentine Belt
All Navajo and B Series Pick-up engines utilize one wide-ribbed V-belt to drive the engine accessories such as the water pump, alternator, air conditioner compressor, air pump, etc. Because this belt uses a spring loaded tensioner for adjustment, belt replacement tends to be somewhat easier than on engines where accessories are pivoted and bolted in place for tension adjustment, such as the MPV. Basically, all belt replacement involves is to pivot the tensioner to loosen the belt, then slide the belt off of the pulleys. The two most important points are to pay CLOSE attention to the proper belt routing (since serpentine belts tend to be "snaked" all different ways through the pulleys) and to make sure the V-ribs are properly seated in all the pulleys.

Fig. Belt routing diagram-4.0L engines


Although belt routing diagrams have been included in this section, the first places you should check for proper belt routing are the labels in your engine compartment. These should include a belt routing diagram which may reflect changes made during a production run.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable for safety. This will help assure that no one mistakenly cranks the engine over with your hands between the pulleys.
Take a good look at the installed belt and make a note of the routing. Before removing the belt, make sure the routing matches that of the belt routing diagrams. If for some reason a diagram does not match (you may not have the original engine or it may have been modified,) carefully note the changes on a piece of paper.
  1. For tensioners equipped with a 1 / 2 inch square hole, insert the drive end of a large breaker bar into the hole. Use the breaker bar to pivot the tensioner away from the drive belt. For tensioners not equipped with this hole, use the proper-sized socket and breaker bar (or a large handled wrench) on the tensioner idler pulley center bolt to pivot the tensioner away from the belt. This will loosen the belt sufficiently that it can be pulled off of one or more of the pulleys. It is usually easiest to carefully pull the belt out from underneath the tensioner pulley itself.

  1. Once the belt is off one of the pulleys, gently pivot the tensioner back into position. DO NOT allow the tensioner to snap back, as this could damage the tensioners internal parts.
  2. Now finish removing the belt from the other pulleys and remove it from the engine.
To install:
  1. While referring to the proper routing diagram (which you identified earlier), begin to route the belt over the pulleys, leaving whichever pulley you first released it from for last.
  2. Once the belt is mostly in place, carefully pivot the tensioner and position the belt over the final pulley. As you begin to allow the tensioner back into contact with the belt, run your hand around the pulleys and make sure the belt is properly seated in the ribs. If not, release the tension and seat the belt.
  3. Once the belt is installed, take another look at all the pulleys to double check your installation.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable, then start and run the engine to check belt operation.
  5. Once the engine has reached normal operating temperature, turn the ignition OFF and check that the belt tensioner arrow is within the proper adjustment range.

Hope helps (remember rated and comment this).

Hoe to replace serpentine belt on 1998 mazda protage


there is a tensioner around the engine (it looks like an idler pulley) there will be a 13-15mm bolt that moves the tensioner to the 'slack' position, while you are holding that tenioner slack you need to remove the belt from one of the pulleys ( usually the highet pulley is the easiest) then just reverse the order of the procedure to install the new one.

*** PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO HOW THE BELT IS ROUTED***

Tryin to tighten the surpentine belt on a 2000 Ford Taurus


Serpentine belts use a spring-loaded tensioner pulley to keep them tight. If the belt is not tight, either it is not routed properly or the tensioner spring is broken. Look for a pulley mounted on an arm by itself, that turns no device such as an air conditioner or pump.

Procedure on changing waterpump


  1. first drain the cooling system.
  2. loosen bolts on the waterpump pulley and remove the inner fender cover on the pass/side.
  3. remove the surpentine fan belt, note; make a diagram of the belt routing so belt will go back on the right way.
  4. remove the bolts you loosened on the pump pulley, use a pry bar to pry engine back to have enough room to remove the waterpump pulley.
  5. remove the bolts holding waterpump, you will want a pan under the van to catch coolant when waterpump is removed,
  6. remove the pump and clean old gasket off the block and install new pump,
  7. reverse to install new pump and fill system with coolant allow engine to run until thremostat opens,hope this is helpful. heres a few diagrams of the waterpump and the cover and the belt routing, good luck and hope this is helpful.

Surpentine belt.


depends on which v8 you have....the 4.7 the routing is as follows it goes under the waterpump pully over the alternator down and around the power steering pumpto the crank...it goes under the bottom of the crank to the idler pully.the flat side of the belt goes ver the idler then around the automatic tensioner to the ac compressor.
on the 5.2 and 5.9 it routes starting at the idler pully the flat side goes undr the idler the up to the ac compressor around the compressor and down to the power steering pump ... around power stering pump to waterpump where the flat side is against waterpump pully around water pump down and around crank up it automatic tensioner....around tensioner and up and over alternator
